Journal of Applied Self-Regulation Launched Dr. Sonia Mastrangelo (Associate Professor and Chair, Undergraduate Education Programs, Orillia) and Dr. Anne Showalter (The MEHRIT Centre) are launching a new journal: the Journal of Applied Self-Regulation. The journal’s purpose is to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to share international research and knowledge about Shanker Self-Reg®. Shanker Self-Reg is based on decades of research by Dr. Stuart Shanker distinguished research Professor Emeritus of Philosophy and Psychology and the Founder & Visionary of The MEHRIT Centre, Ltd (TMC).  Through TMC that research continues and grows in its application through the work of CEO Dr. Susan Hopkins. “Self-regulation is the ability to remain calmly focused and alert during times of stress, and this knowledge can be applied to a multitude of situations,” says Sonia. The first issue of the journal, to be published in the Fall of 2023, includes a compilation of conference proceedings from the Applied Self-Regulation Knowledge (ASK) Conference that took place at Lakehead University Orillia last May. The conference focused on improving the mental health of post-secondary students, and included contributions from faculty members, graduate students, and mental health professionals. The Journal of Applied Self-Regulation will be part of the ASK (Applied Self-Regulation Knowledge) website.
